    I dont think all TVs can switch to all refresh rates.
    Maybe the lower end ones or ones only sold in one country.

    With this firmware I also see freezes during sleep. I'll turn the TV off while leaving the Minix running. Oftentimes (more than 50%) when I turn the TV back on (usually 3 to 8 hours later) it will be stuck on a dimmed version of the screen (in XBMC or launcher) and nothing I do will show any response other than unplugging it and plugging it back in.

    It never did this under the previous firmware versions.

    Hi, this patch works great! No more audio dropping. Is this in firmware 004? When I upgraded to 004 I started to get audio drops again. ..

    l updated by FOTA to version 004 and continued to have drop outs, so I then used the burn tool and flashed FW004a using my laptop and the dropouts have gone.

    Maybe you could try the same?

    Hi Ken,

    I am facing this issue with firmware 006 on the X8H-Plus.
    Was this patch merged into that release?
    If not, can you send instructions on how to do it?

    I have a Minix X8-H and I also have same problem with the sound. The minix is factory software. I could not connect the box to the PC. Is there a zip file update we can use to update the firmware and solve this sound issue or will be a FOTA uptade available soon .?
    Thank you

    I was searching for solution last few days. I thought that some settings need to be done to correct this annoyng sound issue. Yesterday I tried something diferent. I deleted an app AirDroid and restart my Android device. The problem has gone since than.
